    And his BA could have gone up in that time as well an down. Gastric emptying and retention can be highly variable even for the same person over time.

    And it might have been 0.07 at the scene and rose to that level in the interim.

    All we know is at the time his blood was drawn he was intoxicated. He should have called a cab, drank less or stayed home.

    Apparently the NFLPA card has the phone number to a free driving service set up for this situation. Too bad more players don't use it. This should never happen.

    Bowling Alley? Is that where he was? I thought he said he was chilling with his "homegirl" to the cops.

    There isn't an excuse for driving intoxicated. But it's not hard to get to 0.08.

    Does it really matter how drunk he was? He made a stupid decision which is magnified because of the Brent incident.

    Drunk is drunk when it comes too driving.

    what is says is that he knew he was drinking way to much and continued to do so knowing he had to drive home. Also, I believe Jay became a father little over a year ago. Jay is obviously making some poor decisions over past few months and you just hope he has capacity to get his life together before another event lands him in big trouble.

    Shiner, not at all.

    Sam Adams is for people who think they like good beer but don't know what good beer is.

    so if it isn't 8-9% ABV (or higher) it's not grown-up beer? Most of that beer tastes like garbage (hop saturated swill) and costs about as much as liquor.

    Yes. If you have a taste for girl beer, real beers will hit your palate like that.
